After “Iron Man 3” disappointed me, my next great hope for a spectacular superhero movie this summer lies squarely with “Man of Steel,” which arrives in theaters next week.

Here’s some new images from the film and they’ve got me even more excited.

Amy Adams should be an exceptional Lois Lane even if it’s going to take some getting use to Lois as a redhead. Wonder if that has anything to do with Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts kinda cornering the market on redhead female love-interests?

I’ve gotta admit that after “The Mandarin,” I’m going to lessen my expectations over these cool shots of Michael Shannon’s General Zod, no matter how sinisterly amazing he looks especially in that heat vision shot.

  • I can’t wait to see this either, hopefully “Man Of Steel” will be as fantastic as it looks.

    I am beginning to wonder if it is spectacular that makes a good movie or a good story with interesting characters. I think this SUPERMAN movie follows the formula that IRON MAN 3 was made on. A villain that fascinates and a hero in whom we see vulnerabilities which are really common to all man kind. So we can relate. If not for that these movies would be just fantasies for children instead of good Film Making which is an Art.

  • Good points that I happen to agree with you on. Audiences seem to get far more invested in these films when they care for the characters and their plight.
